Nothing earth-shattering in the garden trap over the last two nights, highlights from the 24 species caught included Calybites phasianipennella (maybe the 6th or 7th Glamorgan record), Acleris sparsana, Udea ferrugalis, Cypress Carpet, Brick, Merveille du Jour, Large Ranunculus, Large Yellow Underwing and Square-spot Rustic.  Small numbers of the rather nondescript plant bug Pinalitus cervinus present in both sessions.

...this is the only other useable one I have Chris


  1. Nice to see phasianipennella, Barry. Did you take any other shots of it?

  2. Sorry Chris, the pics are a bit soft as they were taken through the glass of the pot

  3. Thanks, Barry. I wouldn't have recognised this form from my book so it would be great to add it to the subs list for a future reprint if that's ok with you. Cheers.

  4. Of course, you know you're always welcome to use any of my images.
